With two new member communities and a name change, 2013 was a big year for the Ann Arbor Area Transportation Authority.  

The transit organization however may continue to see changes during 2014.  AAATA CEO Michael Ford says The Ride is seeing strong use of existing services but there is still demand for more transit options.

Like many, I first came to this area when I started school at the University of Michigan, then fell in love with the community and haven’t left. After graduating from U of M in the mid 1990’s I interned at WDET for several years, while also working a variety of jobs in Ann Arbor. Then in 1999 I joined the WEMU news team.
